1960s. warren harding in the mid 1920s. reduce tax and regulatory burden. melissa: you have a very specific list. i want to make sure we hit on the points because there is a specific at that today list. one get the government out of the subsidies by. explain at that to me and how big of an impact would that make? >>uge impact. this is seat of the pants estimate between the tax subsidies and direct grants and subsidies we make to schemes like soldra, totally that is about one-third of federal spending right there. that is not only money that being wasted, it is diverting capital from its highest and best use, to the whims of politicians. melissa: yeah. >> when you divert investment decisions from investors that make those decisions based upon the best economic return for the dollar and give those decisions instead to politicians, they make those decisions based on the highest political return for th dollar. that's a very different thing. melissa: your number two on the list i like very much. it is enact losers pay. basically lawyers have a huge influence on the political system. and
, but apparently it's coming back. >> elizabeth warren, senator scott brown is getting personal. it has to do with elizabeth warren's claims of native american heritage. both sides are airing out the debate in tv buys across the state. >> i'm scott brown and i approve this message. >> elizabeth warren is trying to put questions about her heritage behind her. >> she admitted to identifying herself as native american to employers. she's facing tough questions about whether she claimed to be a minority for professional gain. >> warren did give an answer, the problem is, it keeps changing. >> is there anything else that will come out about you that we don't already know? >> you know, i don't think so, but who knows. >> as a kid, i never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our native american heritage. what kid would? but i knew my father's family didn't like she was part cherokee and part delaware. my parents had to elope. i never asked for and never got any benefit because of my heritage. the people who hired me all said they didn't know about it. i'm elizabeth warren, i approve
and make native war advice to elizabeth warren's cherokee defense. brown has not confirmed or denied it but here's what he said. >> this is the first time i'm hearing of it, but i know we had a lot of rallies. so i don't know what you're specifically referring to, but if you're saying that, certainly that's not something i condone. it's somethingly something that if i am aware of ill, i'll check into it. but the real issue here is and the real offense is the fact that professor warren checked the box. she said that she was white, and then she checked the box saying she was native american and then she changed her profile in the law directly once she attained her tenure. that's quite offensive to native americans and something that she should release in her records. >> doubled down in a commercial and i for the live of me can't figure out why they're debating this in massachusetts and why he's debating this. >> what i would add is that elizabeth warren within 24 hours had her own ad which suggest thad the war rinne campaign doesn't want to just leave it out there, they they're concern
and missouri. >> massachusetts scott brown and elizabeth warren has turned out to be the weirdest race in the country. >> don't understand why he went after this issue and so far has not backed down. he's still talking about what she did or did not say about her own ethnic heritage. >> this was an issue earl hi on in the campaign. scott brown went early very hard against elizabeth warren on the basis of race. and while it got a lot of national attention, sort of everything he does gets national attention. sort of a darling of the beltway media and so he gets a lot of attention for what he does. he got a lot of press for it but didn't get any movement in the polls. polling pretty well and consistently throughout and then he took a dive. she gave that well received speech to the democratic convention polls generally turned even more strongly toward the democrats he ended up losing in four straight polls in massachusetts and then all of a sudden he's put her race back as the main reason to vote against her. he has never disproven that she is native american. he says essentially look at he
one issue up there is painting elizabeth warren as native american. of course, she helped maybe create that issue, but is this the issue that is going to help him win? >> i think this is the beginning of a long campaign that he is going to run. the fact fors on the ground all argue in warren's favor. there are going to be -- >> bill: democratic registration -- >> exactly 7 or 8,000 new voters who didn't vote for scott brown back in the special election in 2010, because they just didn't come out to vote. now he has to do something to undermine her credibility. at the moment the polls are showing elizabeth warren on a pretty strong rise. so scott brown has to do something to change this race. and i think elizabeth warren demonstrated it is an issue of concern for her. she herself went up with a response ad hours after scott brown did, which tells me they believe that is something of concern. >> bill: yeah. and she had addressed it before, but she can't take any chances. all right. reid wilson, thanks for your time this morning. and thanks for all of those fre
, thank you for being with us. we have warren decker. joining us from boston, a professor alan schroeder. he has 50 -- 50 years of high risk tv. what makes a good debate and a good debater? >> i think the difference between a really good debate from my standpoint, intercollegiate debate, and debates we see at the presidential level is that a really good debate would be characterized by some depth of clash and arguments back and forth between the two. a lot of that is missing from presidential debate. the testing of ideas comes from that clash. without that clash, i think the debates to not serve quite the punch. in presidential debates, the primary function they serve is to fill in the blanks in between, give the challenger and opportunity to be on the same stage, as laura was indicating. they serve a valuable function. comparing them to the types of debates at the collegiate level is unfair, i think. >> alan schroeder, you called this a high risk television. why? >> it is a television show more than a traditional debate. a debate is the word we have used. back in 1961 they were doing th
for a debate between incumbent president scott brown and elizabeth warren. c-span will have coverage of that. that will be followed at shinnecock by -- 8:00. c-span2 will have eric cantor as she squares off against a former army colonel when powell. live coverage at 7:00 eastern on c-span2. "usa" richard walsh sat down with an interview with ross perot. c-span cameras were there to record the interview from his home and office in texas. he talked about running as a third-party candidate, dealing with the country's debt, and the u.s. education system. here is a look. >> go to our most elite engineering schools. at one time we had more talented engineer than anyone else. we were discovering everything in the world. now that has all turned around. and it is getting worse by the day. 78% of the people getting ph.d. is in our most elite engineering schools come from either china or india. ok? now, 20% come from all over the world. now i'm up to 90%. that means 2% of the people getting phd's are coming from the united states and our most elite engineering schools. that is a recipe for disaster. we
? you just like the sector itself? >> we like the sector, yeah. >> okay. warren myers is there as well, i think, as the new york stock exchange. why the intensity of the selling into the close? >> i think we had an overexaggerated run up with quadruple expiration last week. we're due for a selloff. we had some negative commentary about the fed's policies and suspect nature of th
been watching, that one in massachusetts between elizabeth warren and scott brown. republicans really need to be able to win that so they can actually net elsewhere. >> all right. so one thing, though, when it comes to the todd akin-clare mccaskill race, we're seeing the first mccaskill ad taking him to task about the legitimate rape comments. let's take a look. >> todd akin said he didn't like social security. on september 3rd, 2011, todd akin said medicare was unconstitutional. march 16th, akin said he wants to abolish the minimum wage and august 19th todd akin said only some rapes are legitimate. what will he say next? >> so, mark this is the first time she's used that about the legitimate rape comment. what strikes you about this ad in general? >> we knew it was coming and came pretty much minutes if not hours after we all knew that todd akin was officially going to remain in the missouri senate contest. the other thing i think is quite striking potentially more damaging ads that clare mccaskill could run with the republicans and mitt romney all saying that somehow todd akin neede

was a spokesperson for secretary of state warren christopher and then madeleine albright for about nine months. the media plays an absolutely indispensable role in our society. they ask the tough questions that need to be asked, and my experience is that journalists, whether tv journalists or print journalists, are very independent people. sure, "the wall street journal" or "at the new york times" may be owned by certain people, but the journalists into an independent job. on governor romney, he has been a very successful person i whatever he has done. very successful business career. i think he was a good governor of massachusetts in many wasted i live in massachusetts. but my own point of view is that he has had a tough presidential campaign. the 47% remark was very damaging to him, and foreign policy, of which i know a little bit, he does not have traction. he has not been able to articulate a really compelling view as to how he would lead to the station in a different direction on foreign and national security policy that president obama. he has the opportunity to do that and maybe he can
